It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!
Delicious and colorful, this simple roasted root vegetables recipe is by Slim Palate.
Preheat the oven to 400° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
In a large bowl add the carrots, sweet potatoes, and beets. Add the garlic, rosemary, and thyme, then pour over the melted butter or lard or fat of choice. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat.
Spread the root vegetables over the foil-lined baking sheet so they are in a single layer and place in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until tender and lightly caramelized on the outside, shaking the tray and tossing them around a couple of time to ensure even cooking. Optionally, you can broil them for about 3-4 minutes after their done to get some extra caramelization on the outside of them.Notes: These go wonderfully as a side served with a salad or just about anything!
